Yoder expects his team to be ready for the Titans.
"It's the last game of the year, potentially our last if we don't see the playoffs," he said. "If you cant get up for that, maybe you shouldn't be playing high school football."
The Titans and Spartans have had similar fates in league this year. Both have lost big to Monrovia, rolled through the Vikings and defeated the Rams. La Cañada did post a more impressive win, 44-27, over Temple City than San Marino, 24-13. The Titans also marched through South Pasadena by a score of 28-7 — behind more than 300 rushing yards Friday — while South Pas beat the Spartans, 21-6.
San Marino runs a no-huddle, hurry-up offense and is led by standout running back Kwame Do, who ran for 234 yards and three touchdowns on 30 carries against South Pasadena. Nick Gott, the Titans' fullback, is a good change of pace from Do. He ran for 93 yards on eight carries on Friday.
Matt Wofford, the Titans quarterback, won't air it out often, but he's efficient. He ran for 26 yards and completed five of six passes for 123 yards against the Tigers.
Defense has also been key to San Marino's success this year, as well, as the Titans have given up an average of 6.7 points in their six victories with three shutouts.
Both phases of the offense have come together late in the year for the Spartans. They beat Blair with a strong ground game, running for 205 yards and four touchdowns, and defeated Temple City with a balanced attack, as La Cañada quarterback Matt Jones passed for 155 yards and a score and ran for 82 yards and two touchdowns against the Rams.
